Production of the next-generation 2018 Jeep Wrangler will commence this November at Fiat Chrysler’s Toledo Assembly Complex in Ohio, The Toledo Blade has revealed.
In order to make way for the all-new Wrangler, FCA will shutter production of the Jeep Cherokee in Toledo in early April and move production of the mid-size crossover to its Belvidere, Illinois production site. The current-generation Wrangler JK will remain in production in Ohio alongside the all-new model until March 2018, at which point it will go out of production in order to make way for a new Wrangler based Jeep pickup.
Jeep will begin making consumer versions of the 2018 Wrangler this fall, however production of initial models will begin much earlier with the intent of working out production kinks. The new off-roader, expected to debut sometime early this year, is expected to arrive with three engine options, two transmission options, a variety of roof configurations and a more refined cabin with up-to-date technologies.
